A PhD curriculum in Nanocatalysis will be established with one of the major universities. PhD students will be trained and supervised at HIPC and a Student lab will be created, where PhD students praticipate in education and training of undergraduates and highschool students.
The inauguration of the lab will be a public festive event with the reconstruction of the laboratory facilities completed, with all the instrumentation in place, and all the staff being hired.
Tee ERA Chair will draft a Research program for the new department of nanocatalysis for the period of the project. It will describe the scientific merit of the work, indicate the the needed resources in terms of funding, instrumentation, and laborforce. It will contain a clear timeline and specify the expected scientific outcomes. This plan will be reviewed annually, and its updates will be included into the Project progress reports.
The selection procedure for team members mirrors that of the ERA-Chair (transparency, broad advertisement, compliance with theCode etc.) with some minor modifications. The two stage procedure is based on a broadly (internationally) and sufficiently long advertised vacancy and consist of a (A) Remote evaluation phase – comprising the analysis of the CVs of the candidates, the publication lists and past achievements, and eventually the motivation and recommendation letters (the remote evaluation phase may also include phone or video interviews); (B) Interview and scientific presentation – the candidate is offered the possibility to present his/her scientific results in a short presentations in front of the interested audience of the HIPC (catalysis departments); at the same time, will the candidate be invited for an obligatory interview in a closed session of the selection committee (SC). Up to five members of the team might be selected. The ERA Chair has hereby a determining role and a veto-vote.
Summarizes the Scientific events organized by the ERA-Chair in the first year of the project implementation, i.e. seminars, workshops, invited lectures. It includes also participation of the ERA-Chair and of the team members in international conferences. This report will contain also the list of the public events organized, co-organized and attended by the ERA-Chair. including short annotation of the presentations.
The project advisory board (PAB) will be established straight from the beginning of the project implementation to allow monitoring of the project from its very early stages. The PAB will have an advisory role to play within the selection procedure of the ERA chair (one member of the PAB is member of the Selection committee, all others will review the CV and any other materials of the preselected candidates).
The number of newly established international cooperation (exchanges, joint publications, visits, formalized contracts, etc.) of HIPC in the field of nano catalysis initiated by the ERA Chair project will be reported reported. Further changes will be reported in the Project progress reports.
A dedicated WEB pages will be created to increase the visibility of the ERA-Chair project. The project accomplishments will be highlighted on the main webpage of HIPC and crosslinked to the WEB-page of the ERA-Chair project. Those accomplishments will be further promoted by using social media and academic and professional networks such as ResearchGate, Academia, Mendeley, LinkedIn, GoogleScholar, blogs in news media.
The first public Engagement day (Nanocatalysis day) will introduce the project to the scientific audience and broader public in context of the dissemination and awareness rising activities of the HIPC and of the Academy of Sciences. It will continue to be held annually.
